I'd expect the (cute) tech support girl to come to me house!
We've already established that port 80 is blocked and paying $300/month to unblock it is out of the question. We are trying to find a good 3rd party host.brendandonhu said:Insight BB doesn't allow you to run a dedicated server on your connection but other than that it should be ok. You would need to install a server like this: http://www.wampserver.com/en/
And you could use dyndns to host the site without a static IP: http://dyndns.org
You would then forward your domain to the DynDNS address.
So it is still out of the question.Me: Is port 80 blocked by this ISP?
Tech: 135, 139, 445, and 593 are the only ports blocked by Insight.
Me: So am I able to have a personal webserver?
Tech: No sir, servers are not allowed on residential accounts.
Me: But port 80 is unblocked...how is this enforced?
Tech: Port scanning. If Network Operations finds a server being run on a residential account, they will suspend the account. It has the potential to put a strain on the node, causing other customers to get slower speeds.
I pay $7.95 a month and I get 10,000 emails, 25GB storage, 75 MySQL Databases, 75 PostgreSQL databases, 300 subdomains and 8 domains. I use hostexcellence.comAyon0080 said:Yea with that 300 doller a mounth thing you get your moneys worth but thats WAY out of price range lol. But some one suggest host gator any one ever hear of it.
